The 日本年金機構 finally comes through  
I guess good things really can happen for those who wait.

I wrote here a while ago about how annoyed I was with the Japanese Pension Office’s continued inaction. Well...they finally acted. I checked Mint this morning, because it's payday and I wanted to check my credit card bill before I paid it, and I noticed that my checking account said there was a lot more money there than I remembered there being. Investigating revealed an "incoming wire transfer" currently waiting to clear, which left me super confused until I remembered that, in my research into why the Pension Office hadn't paid us yet, some people mentioned that they had received a letter letting them know their refund was coming and some people had just received a wire transfer out of nowhere.

Either there’s a bizarrely coincidental bank error, or the Pension Office finally paid us. Yay! High five!

Now we can apply for a refund of the taxes that they automatically deduct before they send you the remittance and wait three more years for that, but that's a much smaller amount of money, so my annoyance should proportionately be smaller. In the meantime, though, I will concentrate on my luck winning the day once again.
